We will be leaving at "OMG it's F'in early" on Tuesday morning.

I'm currently on a packaging project... vac-packing meals for the sitter (my friend that I've mentioned before).
8 days, 4 cats, 2 meals each = ... 64 meals.... with special attention to Belle's meals.
And even though we are taking Babee with us, I'm pre-packing her meals as well... so add another 16 meals for a grand total of ... 80 meals.

Does this officially make me a "crazy" cat lady?   sillytongue

LOL to leaving early.
LOTS of work to leave furkids for days.  We have only both left for 3 1/2.  It was MUCH easier to drop the skin kids off at Grandma's house.   ;D

Quick Update:

Belle is doing great.  Slowly giving her larger chunks to work on.

Teaka had to go in for emergency dental today to the tune of $760.  Her top left canine had resorbed to the point that the tooth BROKE OFF.  She also had another tooth in the beginning stages of resorbtion that was removed.
She gave absolutely NO INDICATIONS that she had anything wrong with her teeth.  I like to think I look at their teeth all the time, I can't believe I missed this.
I feel dumb...
and poor.

Thanks for the update on Belle.  Please try not to blame yourself.  Cats are just so incredibly good at hiding pain.  I felt the same way when my boy first had the resorptive lesions.  I had had no idea he was in pain, and I was absolutely mortified when my vet told me about the resorptive lesions.

Teaka will be feeling good as new very soon.  All paws crossed for a quick recovery.   grouphug

Oh no Teaka!!! so sorry about your tooth, I hope you are feeling better soon. what does reabsorption mean? did she get a bone stuck in there?
So glad that Belle is doing better.

Purrs, hugs and butterfly kisses love1

Welcome BACK!
Glad to hear Belle is doing better.  Sooooooo sorry about Teaka...and the vet bills.  YIKES.   :o
I agree with the others...don't feel badly.  Cats DO hide/tolerate pain very well.  You are a wonderful cat mom...things get missed.  You are human.

Well, it's Halloween, so I suppose it's appropriate to resurrect this thread from the ashes....

*raises arms grandiosely*

Arrriiiiise old thread, a-RIIIIISE!!!





Belle went in for another tooth extraction yesterday....  she now has 3 teeth left... total.  lol

I guess my message about the Rimadyl was heard loud and clear.  When I mentioned it, the vet said, "Just so you know, I have that note in ALL of your cat's files.  So in case anyone other than me is looking, they will know."  lol

On the other hand, it was good that I insisted on a "refresher", as I had to reiterate that I did not want the antibiotic injection.  I'd rather take pills home.

It's actually a good thing I re-read this whole thing, I'd forgotten that Belle had a reaction to the Buprenol... which is what we were sent home with.    oops!  Guess I'll be making a call about that later.

So now I'm off to the store down the street to pick up candy for the trick or treaters... nothing like contributing to someone else's eventual dental bills... muahahahahaha!

3 teeth… how does she eat raw?  You feed raw chunks right… not the raw mush.  (Non-technical terms.)

On meat days, I cut the pieces into small bites that she can just swallow after gumming them a bit.
On bone days, it depends. 
     If it's ribs, I cut them into long slices across the ribs, they are fairly easy for her to swallow.
     If it's wings, I get out the 5 lb cleaver and choppity-chop it all into mush.  yah, I do it by hand.

She is again having a tough recovery, poor thing.  She is so grumpy.  Don't blame her.  :(
